-- the top 2% of earners in america are not going to have their tax cuts extended. >> the two sides have been swapping proposals this week but insiders say they didn't view the last white house plan as a serious counteroffer so they resent their original proposal to the president. the problem isn't just there's a big gulf between the two sides, they don't understand how to negotiate with each other. you'd think they might have figured out how to communicate. that hasn't happened. correctly fearing the republicans were insulted by that offer, the phone call the president had with boehner on tuesday night was an attempt to save the talks and assure boehner that the white house wasn't trying to be insulting with their offer and it was a tense conversation. so when it comes to the sticking point, the president has a big edge on this as far as the public is concerned, particularly on taxes and in our poll 76% said they'd be willing to accept higher rates on the wealthy, including 61% of republicans and it was tax rates. that's what we asked in our question, folks. perhaps trying to be sure they do
america accepted him back for questioning? or only wait for the charge and wait for the official extradition requests? >> no, he won't lose any rights that he would have under u.s. law. and even if he were a person of interest in an investigation in the united states, in the absence of an arrest warrant, he cannot be taken into custody. however, if they return a murder indictment, he can be forced back. >> do they have capital p. ishment? >> i don't think they do. >> people won't extradite prisoners to the u.s. if there's a potential for facing the death pen a alt penalty. >> and this is a murder investigation. whether he'll be charged is an entirely different question. but the prime minister of belize has called him paranoid and, quote, bonkers as a result of statements that mcafee's made about the belize government. so he's not really making too many friends there. >> one last question about the legal situation here in the united states. the family of mr. faull, the murder victim, do they have any recourse, could they go through the civil courts here and go after from mcafee fo

businesses at a time when we're expecting small businesses to be the engine of job creation in america. ernst & young made it clear if we do what the president is asking for, some 700,000 jobs would be at risk. it's simple as that. >> [inaudible]. >> well, we really shouldn't be. i argued going back to the spring this issue had to be dealt with. that's why in may the house moved a bill to replace the sequester with other cuts in mandatory spending. that is why in july the house passed a bill to expend -- extend all the current tax rates. i've been pushing all year for us to address this problem. but here, we are, at the 11th hour around the president still isn't serious about dealing with this issue right here. it is this issue, spending! now you go back, want to talk about polling, most americans would agree that spending is a much bigger problem than raising taxes. they want us to deal with this in a responsible way. >> problem with congress? my point, whatever the issue is takes this long each year in december to get these things done. >> unfortunately that is the case that we're dealing w
managing editor rona. with christmas less than two weeks away it's seeming more likely that america will see santa claus before it sees a deal on the fiscal cliff. the house majority and minority leaders issued a clear message today and yesterday don't book your plane tickets. >> we don't know if we would be home for the rest of hanukkah or christmas. let's really get real about this if we're going to have a solution, and let's stay here and sit at that table. >> we've said we're committed to staying here. we're going to stay here right up until christmas eve throughout the time and period before the new year. >> there are no talks scheduled today between the president and house speaker boehner. meanwhile, fed chairman ben bernanke, the man who coined the term fiscal cliff, urgently warned that just approaching the edge is causing damage. >> why is it that consumer confidence dropped so sharply this week? why is it that small business confidence dropped so sharply? why are the markets volatile, even though we're not yet even reached the point of the fiscal cliff potentially kicking

it the way america said they want it to be done. they've been well-educated. not that other well educated people have not been subjected to vicious recriminations, but there's a resonant theme here about highly intelligent black people and some unconscious refusal to acknowledge their legitimacy. i mean, the questioning of especially president obama's intelligence and susan rice's intelligence resonates very powerfully here and as jonathan halter did, i could give you history after history after history of the cases in which african-american people of prominence have been questioned, brought to the bar of public concern as to the legitimacy of their intelligence and yet all along proving they are more than superior to those who oppose them. >> wasn't the problem here additionally made more difficult after david petraeus went before the committee and said, terrorism was involved and appeared to contradict what susan rice had said, and at that point her position became more difficult, didn't it? >> and unten beableuntenable. >> it was difficult all along. and there was a good chance all alo
of constitutionality, the integrity of the government, the balance of powers. we're standing up for america. i mean, you could build a heck of a story saying you're going to defie an imperial president with his -- spit while you say it, ultimate mate -- ultimatum. >> the republicans can say we came up with the compromise. we did the thing we didn't want to do offering tax increases, whether it's deduction closing or rate hikes, so the republicans have clearly moved, and i think that somehow they got to show that to the public and that it is spending that the democrats will not come back with. >> one other issues neither side talked about, the central issue in america, jobs, growth, stimulating a more abun adapt -- abundant economy. bottom line, both sides missed it. lou: missed it, and frankly, an introduction to a head wind of $260 billion taxes because of obamacare, and then the fiscal cliff. susan, thank you very much. we appreciate it, michael. thank you, doug. great to have you with us. now for your comments,
an air supply for the crew. the semis move cocaine from mbia to central america, where it's then transferred by planned landing into the u.s. >> careful, it's not solid. >> reporter: inside, we found the semi-sub to be a floating warehouse with ace for drugs and little else. this is the pilothouse of a big foot 2 semi-submersible-- the helm, a compass, the controls-- and very cramped quarters for the crew of four. another semi-sub was caught by the coast guard in september 2011 by patrolling drug smuggling lanes. the cutter mohawk received an intelligence tip and intercepted this vessel near honduras. when a coast guard skiff closed in, the crew scuttled the sub and bailed. the vessel sank in seconds. with an unknown cache of cocaine resting just 80 feet below the surface, the coast guard feared dealers would try to retrieve the lost treasure so the f.b.i.'s dive team was called. michael tyms is the team's leader. >> part of the mission is deny the drugs the ability to get here to our country so to leave them there would have left the job unfinished, so to speak. >> report
a culture different from america and because they have to pay homage to that culture yet they are in america, they are at a struggle. it's not surprising when they come home and they want to talk to their mom or they want to talk to their dad or talk to their siblings about something a happened at school or something that happened at a community organization they are involved in, they just can't because they feel that -- they can't. they are afraid to and even if they do, they either get disowned or get kicked out or get beat up, unfortunately sometimes. i feel that sometimes family can feed into biases because of those cultural differences and we as community service providers need to realize that and acknowledge that. families aren't always positive for our youth. >> becky, in your experience what does it take to unseat that kind of bias? >> i think there are a few things. i wanted to back up a little tiny bit. when luslyn talked this morning she talked about our society not only tolerating but sometimes promoting it. one example is immigrants that has been widely out there in the l
of the year. it's affecting america today. well, even santa claus is upset. santa claus showed up on capitol hill wednesday, urging congress and the white house to strike a deal to avoid the looming fiscal cliff before christmas. >> it's discouraging that our elected leadership in congress can't come together to get the job done for the american people. >> reporter: both sides say it's putting a damper on the holidays. >> i think it's going to be extremely difficult to get it done before christmas. ? . >> in anticipation, there is no agreement. congressional leaders told lawmakers not to make holiday travel plans. >> we're going to stay here right up until christmas eve, throughout the time and period before the new year because we want to make sure that we resolve this in an acceptable way for the american people. >> president obama and house speaker john boehner continue to talk. >> but we've got serious differences. >> those differences are already affecting americans. fed chairman ben bernanke says just the threat of the fiscal cliff is dragging down the economy. >> it's already affectin

, pressure for a deal intensified. jamie dimon, head of america's largest bank bias sets, jpmorgan chase, and a big wall street player, said lawmakers have to see the bigger picture. >> they know all the cards right now. you can lay them out, you can debate them all day long. everyone knows what they are. now they have got to go decide. if they go decide now, you might have a booming economy in a couple months. >> reporter: one part of the fiscal cliff drama is across-the-board government spending cuts. today every member of the house received a letter ordering them to impose 11% across the board cuts to their own budget. john boehner will meet with reporters in a couple of hours and president obama will do some interviews with stations across the country. >> also in washington is republican senator jim demint of south carolina. senator, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> senator, what do you think is going to happen? >> i wish i knew. most of us here are not in the loop of what they're discussing. but i do know this, that this government doesn't need more money, this country nee
